    Exclamation Mount and Blade leaving the Paradox stables, heading out on new adventures!

    As of January 31st at 00:00 (UTC -08:00) Paradox Interactive will be handing over the reins for Mount and Blade back to the developer, TaleWorlds. It’s been five and a half years since Mount and Blade was released, five and a half years of sieges, tournaments and pitched open-field battles, and of course, the odd expansion or two!

    We feel honoured to have fought beside you and at our final parting of ways would bid our farewells with a gift which has automatically been added to your Steam library.

    What is your gift? One of our internal studios, Paradox North, is currently hard at work on a spell-casting action PVP game by the name of Magicka: Wizard Wars. As we know that you are all fans of fast-paced tactical combat we feel that you would be equally as adept with a robe and staff as you are with sword and shield, as such our gift to you is an invitation to our Early Access alpha of Magicka: Wizard Wars.

    If you would like to know more about the game please do check www.wizardwars.com or our official forum at http://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/...ka-Wizard-Wars.

    Again, thank you for an exciting five and a half years!

    /Paradox Interactive


    Official Taleworlds forum: http://forums.taleworlds.com/ - This is where you go to discuss Mount and Blade!
    We will be shutting this forum down for posting soon. And at a later stage it will disappear completely, so if you have anything on here you wish to preserve. Now is the time to get it!

    I would recommend the persistent mod of M&B Warband CRPG to anyone. It has a map with castles and sieges and armies moving around and you level characters and gain weapons and skills. Kind of a mini-MMO with the best medieval combat system ever designed.

    http://c-rpg.net/
    Top 5 wish list:

    1) Make DOWs and naval combats default pop-up messages. Add a separate air vs. naval bmbing pop-up message.
    2) Upgradable Soviet Guards (and elite MEC+ARM units)
    3) Limit GOI's
    4) Improve forts, engineer construction missions to get in line with the rest of the detail in the game.
    5) Dissent/threat hit for refusing trade of surplus resources when one/both of the parties are at peace to avoid resource starving pre-war strategies in MP.

    Thank you for introducing me to this game, paradox, and let us see where the future takes you, taleworlds!

    Also hugely relieved this did not end with the report "The Three Mountains achievement broken. Steps to reproduce: ..." - Rufo

    If anybody wants to play great multyplayer mod there's Full Invasion 2 and thanks to Paradox for the gift. I actually bought Magicka a few hours ago not knowing that I also got Wizard Wars which was a great surprise

    The blog entries for M&B2 look stunning, some of us were afraid the graphics wasn't going to take much of a leap forward but I know I've been proven wrong now!

    Can't believe Paradox would let TaleWorlds go personally, I think I'd be begging them to stay! Oh well.

    I look forward to playing M&B2.

    Ditto had to go through the forum list instead.

    Since I already own Wizard Wars, will I receive a gift to give to a friend or is it a founder/IMPressive pack so that I would upgrade instead?

    While I am sad that Taleworlds is leaving, I find it wonderful that Paradox is letting them leave and wishing them luck. Most publishers would force devs to stay and keep hold of their IP's. This shows you that Paradox is a great company.

    Cool, thanks for the game.

    Yes. I will soon disable the option to register it however. But all who got it before that keeps it.

    I guess not. I haven't received the gift either. Oh well.

    Good luck TaleWorlds! I'll be buying M&B 2, that's for sure!
